What is The Collaborative / Integrated Construction Breakfast Group of Greater Cincinnati?

An informal coalition of professionals who meet for breakfast once a month to discuss topics revolutionizing the US Construction Industry!

James L. Salmon, President of Collaborative Construction Resources, LLC, is proud to announce the formation The Collaborative / Integrated Construction Breakfast Group of Greater Cincinnati. This informal coalition of construction industry professionals will meet for breakfast once a month to network with one another and to discuss a wide variety of revolutionary topics that are germane to the US Construction Industry. The first meeting will be at 7:30 a.m. on June 26, 2008 at the the Cincinnatian Hotel, located at 601 Vine Street, Cincinnati, Ohio 45202.

At the first meeting James will share his vision of the Collaborative Construction Revolution and the impact of innovative new web-based programs like the Onuma Planning System. We will also identify the interests of the attendees and discuss how to generate interest and participation in the Group. Finally, we will tap another organization to make the presentation at the next meeting. James' presentation will take less than 30 minutes and will begin at 7:30 a.m. Attendees are encouraged to arrive by 7:00 a.m. in order to network with one another.

Who should attend?

Owners, Design Professionals, General Contractors, Trade Contractors and Suppliers or Vendors, and their consultants, advisers, risk mangers and attorneys are all encouraged to attend. The purpose of the Group is to draw US Construction Industry professionals out of their bunkers and to initiate honest and open dialogue between these disparate segments of the industry. Local members of AIA, CURT, COAA, AGC, ABC, the buildSMARTalliance, the Lean Construction Institute, the local Home Builders Associations and similar organizations should all attend.

Why attend?

There will be great networking opportunities at these meetings and you will learn something new about the rapidly expanding Collaborative / Integrated Construction Revolution every month. You will also meet like minded professionals who share your passion for increasing efficiency and productivity in the US Construction Industry.

When, Where and How Much?

The Collaborative Construction Breakfast Group will meet on the LAST Thursday of every month at the Cincinnatian Hotel at 7:00 a.m. Each month an informal presentation will shed light on a different topic of interest. The Cincinnatian is on the Northwest corner of Sixth and Vine streets in Downtown Cincinnati. Valet parking is available and several public parking garages and surface lots are nearby. A full breakfast will likely cost you less that $25.00, and we are investigating the possibility of a discount. There is no charge for attendance or membership in the Group. We look forward to seeing you there!

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

Warmest Regards,

James L. Salmon
